December 2023’s Mortgage Rate Increases

Ecology Building Society sustainable mortgages and savings logo 2

Today, we’re increasing the interest rates on some of our mortgage accounts.

We work hard to carefully balance the needs of all our Members in all we do, and raising our mortgage rate is never an easy decision to make. Since December 2021, the Bank of England base rate has risen by 5.00%. During this time, we’ve kept our residential rate increases to 2.39% (including this change).

You can find the details of our new residential mortgage interest rates below:

Old Interest RateNew Interest Rate
Small Woodlands8.14%8.39%
Offsite build arrears6.04%6.29%
Offsite build advanced6.54%6.79%

We’re also increasing the interest rate on some of our commercial mortgages. We’ve written to any Members affected by these changes.
